Hokkaido, the northern-most island of Japan, offers some of the most desolate and rugged yet sublimely beautiful winter landscape photography opportunities on the planet. It’s the minimalist winter photographer’s dream.
Tokyo based photographer Martin Bailey has been traveling to Hokkaido yearly for more than 10 years and has a deep understanding of the island. Although British born, Martin has lived in Japan for 26 years, speaks fluent Japanese and understands the culture fully, making him your perfect host.
You’ll be provided with more details in our tour guidebook after you reserve your place, but here is an outline of our itinerary during our twelve day landscape photography adventure in the frozen far north of Japan.
Jan 7 Haneda Airport
To ensure that the group is all together and ready to leave early on Jan 8, we include the night of Jan 7 (Sunday) in the tour, and for those that arrive early enough in the evening, we will start to get to know each other over an optional dinner at the hotel at Haneda airport.
